Domain Name Information
A look at the domain name record for this website address tells us that this name was registered only a few months ago. The owner of the site has chosen to use a privacy service to keep their real name and contact details out of the publicly accessible database. These two details could suggest that this is a scam pharmacy site, as it is common for dubious stores to not be around for very long.
Business Contact Details
It is good to find the contact details of an online pharmacy you want to do business with. It gives you some additional way to make contact if something goes wrong and lets you know under what jurisdiction they operate. The Canadian Pharmacy Service does include a contact address on their site, however, it is only a PO box in Richmond, British Columbia. The lack of a real operating address isn’t a great sign of a pharmacy you can put your full trust in.
The use of this PO box address and the fact that they are hiding their details in the domain records means we don’t really know which country they operate from. They may actually be in Canada, as the site suggests, but it is impossible to be certain.
In order for online pharmacies to be fully legit, they need to be following some regulation. This will make sure that you, as a patient, have a higher level of protection from problems like fake medication or mishandling of your personal data. The main regulation in Canada comes from CIPA, which stands for the Canadian International Pharmacy Association. Running a check on their database shows that this pharmacy is, in fact, a registered member.
LegitScript is a good place to go to find out if an online drugstore is operating in accordance with the rules. However, when we check this site in their database it turns out that it is too new to have been reviewed by them.
They sell both generic and brand-name drugs. A prescription is required to order pills from this retailer, and you have to send it in before they will dispense.
Drugs are dispensed from not only Canada but also fulfillment centers around the world. This could be an issue, with the chances of receiving counterfeit medicine much increased.
The owners of this pharmacy site have set up a number of very similar stores. The other stores use much of the same text and use the same website theme. Different color schemes and photos have been used on some of the stores, but it is clear they are operated by the same business.
Payment and Shipping
Credit cards can be used to buy drugs from this online store. The site has a valid security certificate so that your personal details won’t be intercepted when using this pharmacy.
Shipping can take up to 2 weeks and will cost $10. Shipping is only available to US addresses.
Customer testimonials can be a goldmine of information on how well online pharmacies really perform. Do they ship drugs in a timely fashion? Are the pills the genuine article? Would previous customers recommend the drugstore? These are just a few of the potential questions you can have answered by customer testimonials.
When looking for CanadianPharmacyService.com reviews, we can only find comments on the front page of the store. The problem with feedback posted to the site itself is that it is only normally going to be very positive because it is posted by the people who run the store. There are seven customer testimonials, which whilst not that many, is actually a lot for a very new store like this one.
Some further investigation uncovers the truth about these testimonials. These customer reviews are also found on the other mirror sites which are run by the same owners of this site. Whilst this feedback may be genuine, it likely doesn’t relate to this website directly.
With the owners of this drugstore hiding their details, only giving a PO box address and posting reviews to the site which don’t directly relate, we can’t give them top marks. In their favor, they are regulated and shipping costs are low. We award them 3-stars out of a maximum 5-star rating.
